Dalai Lama discharged from hospital in New Delhi
NEW DELHI: The Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who was admitted to a hospital in New Delhi with chest infection, was discharged on Friday (12 April). He will be resting in Delhi for some days before returning to Dharamsala.

He had returned to Dharamsala from Delhi after attending an international conference on Monday, but the next day he felt uneasiness in his chest and had to be brought here for checkup, according to Tenzin Takla, his private secretary.

“When he woke up this morning (Tuesday) he was feeling discomfort and so we brought him to Delhi. Doctors said he will undergo treatment for next two- three days,” he added.

The sources said that the Dalai Lama witnessed sleeplessness and restlessness on Monday night.

Reiwa - A new era dawning in Japan, marking a break from Chinese
TOKYO: A new era or 'gengo' begins in Japan on May 1 with the coronation of prince Naruhito. The current emperor, 85-year old Akihito, had abdicated last year due to poor health. The new era has been named 'Reiwa' as against the running gengo called 'Heisei'.

'Reiwa' is a character of 'harmony' chosen from an ethnic work of poetry signifying a break from the tradition of following Chinese names and laying stress on Japan's own culture.

The era is printed on coins, newspapers, driving licences and all other official papers. The system is gradually declining with dependence on Western calendar.

Currently, New York is in the grip of a corona epidemic. Casualties are mounting day by day. Hospitals are overflowing with patients. There are not enough beds and ventilators. The US has the maximum number of cases in the world, crossing a lakh, and most of them are in New York City. Density of population and its mobility in cities are contributing to the higher mortality which could further climb till the cycle of the viral transmission takes the down turn.
Coronavirus is on the rampage. No end in sight to its danse macabre. Why this newly-born pathogen is so terribly powerful. Let us take a look at its ferocious arsenal and ways to deal with it!

Make no mistake, coronavirus testing is not for treatment. There is no treatment so far for covid. Testing is to prevent community transmission by identifying the silent carriers of the deadly pathogen and quarantining them.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus. So also Health Minister Hancock. Wishing early recovery, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote to Johnson: "You’re a fighter and you will overcome this challenge as well." The corona crisis has gone out of control in the UK with not enough equipments to fight the contagion.

During corona time, the best is not to step out; in case you go out, use hand sanitizer frequently; stay away from others 6 feet; don't touch face, eyes, nose, mouth, and if in self- doubt, carry a stress ball; wash hands with soap thoroughly on return - You are safe, and others too. Sure!

The iconic Notre Dame cathedral of Paris, where Napoleon had his coronation, and where the crown of thorns Christ wore was believed to have been kept, has been consumed by flames. The spire, the roof and artefacts inside are gone. Donations are pouring in and Macron has vowed to reconstruct the historic building. The ancient cathedral is a Unesco World Heritage site. Disney has a film made on "Our Lady."

Three people died on Sunday when a plane collided with two parked helicopters while taking off at Lukla airport, known as Tenzing Hillary airport, near Mount Everest, 125 km northeast of Kathmandu. There were no passengers as it was returning. It veered off while take-off and collided with the copters. The dead were two security guards who were standing nearby and the pilot. With no radar or navigation device and a very short runway, Lukla is described as the most dangerous airport. It is the gateway to Mount Everest.
